Baptism 15Mar 1Four of our young people asked if they could publicly declare their faith in Jesus by being baptised, so a baptismal service was planned on 15Mar. A week before the event two slightly older young people(!) also asked for baptism. On the day another (even older!) young person spontaneously came forward to be baptised. The hall was buzzing with praise and thanksgiving to God.

Believer’s baptism is a special moment on the journey of faith. It’s a personal commitment to Jesus, a public declaration of new life and a celebration that we have been buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live in the power of the Holy Spirit.
